Mass Incarceration. The New Jim Crow. The War on Drugs. Thanks to Professor Michelle Alexander these phrases are now intimately linked in the minds of social justice advocates and faith leaders as we begin a critical struggle for fairness, justice and human rights in the criminal courts, police precincts and prisons of America. The Next Movement is convinced that America can do better, and that the majority of Americans would want us to do better, if they knew the truth. The truth about systemic incarceration, structural second class status, completely uneven law enforcement practices, oppressive and selectively enforced laws that is filling the prisons of America.

(In)Justice for All Film Festival

In line with the vision of The Next Movement . . .

The U.S. justice system is inhumane and immoral, and can only be changed through the efforts of everyday people passionately working to educate and inform their communities. Core to our success is the conviction that America is committing an incredible injustice on entire populations of its own citizens, and that brought to light, average Americans will become allies in the fight for justice and human rights.
. . . the (In)Justice for All Film Festival (IFAFF) will bring to audiences films that explore our current criminal justice system – police, courts, and corrections – and the for-profit industries that feed at this trough of human misery. We will share the stories of the millions that are relegated to second-class citizenship under an unforgiving system.

We will show better ways that exist in other countries and even best practices right here in America. IFAFF will screen feature length documentaries, as well as topical shorts, with themes covering the following subjects:

  • The War on Drugs and its effect on individuals, families, and society
  • The science of addiction
  • The politicization of crime and punishment
  • Global alternatives to imprisonment
  • Incarceration’s impacts on men, women, and children (inside and out)
  • Restorative Justice – Restoring Community Health
  • Good Cop/Bad Cop – Discretionary Police Power
  • History of Incarceration
  • Mental Health in America
  • Immigration
  • The Gang Alternative
  • Prison Reform Movements
  • Politically Motivated Imprisonment
  • Prison Profiteers – The corporations that profit from prison growth
The power of film to educate and influence, to inspire and engage, and to ultimately exponentially grow the numbers of active allies in the fight to end the embarrassing injustice that mass incarceration represents, is the catalyst for the (In)Justice for All Film Festival.
